George Schaller has spent much of his life traversing wild and isolated places in his quest to understand and conserve threatened species - from mountain gorillas in the Virunga to snow leopards in the Himalaya. Throughout his career, Schaller has spent more time in Tibet than anywhere else, devoting over thirty years to the wildlife, culture, and landscapes that captured his heart. "Tibet Wild" is Schaller's account of three decades of exploration in the most remote stretches of Tibet. As human development in the region accelerated, Schaller watched the clash between wildlife and people become more common - and more destructive. What began as a purely scientific endeavour became a mission: to work with local communities, regional leaders, and national governments to protect the ecological richness and culture of the Tibetan Plateau. Whether tracking brown bears, penning fables about the tiny pika, or promoting a conservation preserve that spans four nations, Schaller has pursued his goal with persistence and good humour. "Tibet Wild" is an intimate journey through the wilderness of Tibet, guided by the careful gaze and unwavering passion of a life-long naturalist.

About George B. Schaller

Dr. George B. Schaller has become known as one of the founding fathers of wildlife conservation over the course of his 50-year career. Spending most of his time in the field, he has led seminal studies on, and helped protect, some of the planet's most endangered and iconic animals ranging from tigers in India to giant pandas in China. These animals have been the basis for his scientific and popular writings, including 16 books, among them The Year of the Gorilla, The Last Panda, and Tibet's Hidden Wilderness. He won a National Book Award in 1973 for The Serengeti Lion: A Study of Predator-Prey Relations.

    A good trick for saving money with a Eurail pass is to book overnight train rides. It saves you the expense of a hotel for the night ??? and is really fun.

      HiMy wife told me that she didn't have feelings for me anymore about 5 years ago. We both talked about it and resolved that we would work towards rebuilding our marriage.we tried various things including date nights and regular talks about the marriage but every time she would disengage. I Kept asking her if she wanted to leave me and her answer was always no. We tried counselling and again she disengaged saying it wasn't for her. Our sex life has diminished to a handful of times a year. In the last year she started telling me to find someone else just for sex. This got me thinking that she wanted to get rid of me. I have not followed any of her suggestions in fact I ended up telling her I did not want to hear it anymore and it stopped. At the moment we have not had sex for about 4 months, every time I try to initiate sex she blocks me from touching her and I'm now afraid that this is it. The strange thing is that she is always planning some long term things for us and yet she tells me she does not love me and has no intention of falling in love with me ever again. I have suggested a trial separation and she does not want that. We do not argue. We are the best of friends and we put on an act in front of friends to the point where our friends admire our marriage. When I try to kiss her she looks away but when friends are around she will kiss my face off. We have two children and we have been married for 16 years.My question is are actually heading anywhere or are we whiling up time until the kids have grown up?I am getting fed up of this game 5 years is a long time to try and rebuild something alone. I still love her to bits and I think that sometimes she uses that against me knowing I'm not going anywhere. What should I do?
